MLB Hall Of Fame Elects Two: Former Met Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven
Second basemen Roberto Alomar got 90% of the vote, third highest all time, was elected to the National Baseball Hall Of Fame along with curve-baller Bert Blyleven.
I have never felt that Blyleven is a Hall of Famer, more of a compiler like Don Sutton, but congratulations must go out to the Flying Dutchmen.
Roberto Alomar had an atrocious year and a half with the Mets, but is well deserving of the honor.
I believe Jack Morris should have been elected, but still did not garner enough votes, receiving only 53% of the vote.
Former Cincinnati Red and MLB Network analyst Barry Larkin just missed with 61.2% of the vote.
These two players join Pat Gillick in Cooperstown in July of 2011.
